Sharknado (2013)

Sharknado (2013)

Country:  USA

Director: Anthony C. Ferrante

Main Stars: Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, John Heard, Cassandra Scerbo, Julie McCullogh

Storyline: Freak hurricane hits LA with some trapped sharks within the cyclone.

Review (Spoils): What happens when your film careers have hot rock bottom? You sign on with a film like this and it turns into a cult following. We have a strange hurricane that hits LA which for some unknown reason creates cyclones (wouldn’t that be a tornado?) which just happens to start in the sea and it traps a large number of sharks within it and drops them into the city randomly. The best part are the sharks do not die on impact, instead they flip and flop and bit through everything. We have a terrible storyline, horrible acting, bad CGI and some off and on blood.

What I did not know was that sharks that can eat through everything, cars, trucks, through glass and even swallow people completely. (Classic chainsaw scene in the end) This movie has it all from munching parts, fake CGI blood and sharks, lost of sharks and a crazy fake tornado (actually 3-4 of them). This movie is just horrid.

Rating: I personally love bad movies but this one might take the cake for bad. If it was not for Cassandra Scerbo all over the screen this could have been a flip it off. This film is damn bad and the CGI just makes it worse. I can see why this has a cult following and multiple sequels (which of course I will get too and watch) as it is just that bad and cheesy. The final scenes takes the bloody cake and dear god what happened to Tara Reid that alone is scarier than the sharks.

C.H.U.D (1984)

Country: USA

Director: Douglas Cheek

Main Stars: John Heard, Daniel Stern, Christopher Curry, Kim Greist

Storyline: New York City is invaded by a group of mutant creatures that in the city underground.

MV5BNDM4NTkwMDczMV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwMTgzMTA5__V1_SY317_CR5,0,214,317_AL_Review (Spoils): A bunch of murders start to happen in New York City and everything starts to lead to something in the sewers. A photographer (John Heard ) who is interested in taking pictures of the homeless and his girlfriend (Kim Greist) get caught in the missing person investigation. Through all searching and noising around the truth comes out that the people are being eaten by a group of people who lived underground but they mutated into monsters. This creates the word C.H.U.D which stands for Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers. In the end too much poking around causes the creatures to come up from underground into the city itself.

We have some great glowing eyes creatures that roam the sewers. We see lots of clawed hands, a dog getting snatched, blood in the drains, a creature getting beheaded, some serious gas in the tunnels, gun shots and a final explosion.

Rating: This is a classic 80s monster film and brings back some cheesy childhood memories. Not the greatest film but it does still stand as cheesy monster film.
